Court told of fiancé's rage

AN ENGINEER'S hopes of rekindling his relationship with his former fiancee were dashed when he found her in bed with another man, a court heard.

Jedburgh Sheriff Court was yesterday told how 45-year-old Mark Taylor had travelled from his home in Edinburgh's Lanark Road to Kelso with the aim of patching things up with his ex.

Taylor, a first offender, pleaded guilty to committing a breach of the peace at her home - behaving aggressively, shouting and swearing and refusing to leave her house on November 8 last year.

Admonishing Taylor, Sheriff Kevin Drummond said: "You handled this situation badly which resulted in you committing this crime."
